Xmas Exhibition: The Time is Now

The Time Is Now

Free | Wheelchair accessible

Over 50 artists come together to address the climate crisis

In an open call for our Christmas exhibition, we invited artistic responses to the climate emergency. The Time is Now reflects artists’ climate hopes, dreams and fears.

Studies of wildlife reveal aspects of the world our artists’ cherish and hope to protect, with portraits of red pandas, polar bears, wild cats and penguins.

Through landscapes, some artists have imagined a utopia where nature flourishes, whilst others show the realities the world faces now, with scenes of forest fires expressing urgency.

Amongst the nature studies and landscapes, there are abstract pieces that anxiously ponder the future, and celebrate the power of collective action.

Over 50 artists will exhibit their climate-themed artwork in our gallery, and our hope is that the show will inspire visitors to continue to learn and speak out on environmental issues – the time is now.

Most of the artwork is for sale, with profits split evenly between Project Ability and the artists.
